The PentaxK-5 II DSLR Camera Kit with 35mm f/2.4 Lens from B&H combines the high-performance K-5 II with a 35mm f/2.4 lens for versatile standard length shooting and a $75 B&H Gift card to spend on your next purchase.
The K-5 II Digital SLR Camera is a top-of-the-line APS-C DSLR camera. It offers a 16.3MP CMOS sensor with integrated Analog/Digital conversion circuitry for high resolution photos and video and an advanced 11-point SAFOX X autofocus system. The ISO sensitivity ranges from 100-12800 in normal setting and is expandable from 80-51200. Combine this with the Pentax body-based Shake Reduction stabilization system and you have a camera that performs well in low light situations and when shooting telephoto. Exposure metering is provided by the Pentax 77-segment metering system and the K-5 II offers shutter speed as fast as 1/8000 second and 7 fps of continuous shooting. Both auto exposure and full manual control are provided.
Full HD 1080p video capture is supported and stereo sound recording is available with the built-in microphones or through external microphones. For playback and composition, the K-5 II has an air-gap-free, scratch resistant 3.0" LCD with 921,000 dots of resolution. The pentaprism viewfinder provides a 100% field of view.
While the Pentax K-5 II is a user-friendly camera accessible to all, it is particularly ideal for shooters who work in extreme conditions. A durable magnesium alloy cover surrounds a stainless steel chassis and the body is fully weather sealed with 77 protection seals throughout the body. It is cold proof to 14º F (-10°C) and has been tested to 100,000 shutter releases.
The 35mm DA L f/2.4 AL Lens offers a 35mm focal length equivalent of 52.2mm, making it a standard length lens on an APS-C format camera like the K-5 II. It is an ideal lens for a multitude of applications, not only because its standard focal length, but because its f/2.4 maximum aperture is effective in low light and able to shoot with high shutter speeds to capture fast-moving action. An aspherical lens element minimizes aberrations and provides sharp overall imaging and a SP (Super Protect) lens coating helps it repel dust, grease and moisture.
